In appreciation for his living
the college motto "In all things . . .
Christ pre-eminent" in front of stu-
dents, faculty, staff and the sur-
rounding community, the TARTAN
staff dedicates the 1987 volume to
Dr. Donovan Graham.
As Dean of External Programs
and professor of Education, Dr.
Graham has continually exhibited
his strong commitment to our Lord
as he trains young men and women
to critically analyze themselves in
light of their devotion to Christ.
Dr. Graham earned his B.A. in
Math and Secondary Education
from the University of Northern
Colorado where at the end of his
junior year he married a young
woman named Wilma. He went on
to earn a Master's Degree in Coun-
seling and Guidance from New
Mexico State University where he
also received a Doctorate in Coun-
seling and Educational Psychology.
Dr. Graham, we the Covenant
community take our hat off to you
as professor, family man, mentor,
and friend. May God continually
bless you, your family, and those
you touch in the years to come.
As I reflect upon the past year, I think of
many special events, such as convocation, the soc-
cer team's regional championship, Madrigal Din-
ners, the spring musical play, Day of Prayer, grad-
uation, and even the presidential roast. Those
events were outstanding and will be remembered
for a long time.
But the year included a great deal of ordinary
activity as well — daily classes, chapel services,
meals in the great Hall, studying in the library,
talking with friends — and these everyday activities
were shaping all of us. It is good for us to remem-
ber that and to resolve again to live all of life in
praise to our Savior and King. An old hymn asks
the Lord to fill every part of our lives with praise,
so that we may proclaim His being and His ways,
and so that we may experience fellowship with the
Lord in all the winding steps of life. May the Lord
be pleased to fill us with gratitude and praise.
It has been a most enjoyable experience to
share many days with you at Covenant College,
and now as our paths separate, I pray that the
Lord will go with you and that you will honor and
praise Him all the days of your lives.
The Holiness of God is an awe-
some and often fearful concept. He
is the all good, all loving and all
just God of Abraham, Issac and
Jacob who lives today.
He is the God who has conse-
crated His people to himself.
Through His all redeeming grace
and mercy He has called us from
darkness into the light. It is the
hope of the TARTAN staff that
each time we open this annual we
would be reminded of who we
should be and what we should do
as Christians in a watching world
where Satan is seeking to devour
our very souls.
May we keep in our minds the
work of Christ upon the cross and
our commitment to Him. Amen.
Thus you are to be holy to Me
for I the LORD am holy:
and I have set you apart from the
peoples to be Mine.
^J : 3
God has created each one
of us as responsible free agents.
We have the ability to act or not
to act in a given situation. It is
our job to carry his praises to
all the ends of the earth. Of this
mandate we have no choice.
In these years of seemingly
turbulent times in Christ's
Church we would do well to look
at His humanity for how He liv-
ed in this world as an example,
We must proclaim Jesus
Christ in all our words and
deeds, keeping in mind at all
times God's uncompromising
Holiness. To this end, may we,
in the totality of our lives, do all
for the glory of God.

This year's Fall Banquet was centered around the 1950's. Dinner
was served with some "oldies but goodies" being played on the jukebox.
It was followed by a VW Cram, a visit from Elvis, a limbo contest, and
the Bunny Hop. The evening was peachy keen!
Fall Banquet/ 19
As in years past, the 1986 Madrigal Feast was quite an event
to remember as the Higgins presided as Lord and Lady. The holi-
day decorations, the seasonal music by the Madrigal singers and
musicians, and the food of the feast set those who attended into
the seasonal Christmas spirit. Highlights included the presentation
of the Boar's head, a jester, a tenor soloist, a recorder performer,
and a Christmas Carol sing-a-long. Truly a festive occasion!
The story of Joseph, son of Jacob, was told in this light and
entertaining drama/musical. Music styles varied from country to
rock-and-roll. In a humorous and delightful portrayal, the cast told
us of Joseph's amazing journey from a slave to the head of the
palace. Allison DuBose and Barb Schreur were the directors in this
first rate performance.

It was a beautiful yet chilly evening aboard the riverboat,
where Convenant students enjoyed their Spring Banquet. Lovely
dressed ladies and handsome clad men filled the ship. Dinner was
served to the music of a live Dixie band. Afterwards, everyone re-
laxed on the outside deck where the moon and the water com-
bined to end the evening on a peaceful note.
The second annual "Spring Thistle" orchestra concert was
held in the Dora Maclellan Brown Chapel-Fine Arts Building at
8:00 p.m. on April 18, 1987.
The varied program was desigend to appeal to a broad audi-
ence, and included works by Wagner, Humperdinck, Schubert,
The fifty-five piece orchestra, conducted by Dr. Monroe, was
composed of our own students, community musicians, professional
musicians from the Chattanooga Symphony Orchestra, and stu-
dents from colleges in the area. In the second portion of the pro-
gram, over ninety musicians, including singers, joined in a bona
fide community effort performing Sound of Music, Shenandoah,
and America the Beautiful.
The Covenant Community was entertained
and inspired by Phil Keaggy, a guitarist and
contemporary singer. Bryan Duncan, who gave
an energy filled concert, opened for Keaggy in
the Great Hall.
Michael Card, a Christian Contempo-
rary singer, came and gave an outstanding
concert in the Spring of 1987.
His mello sound and interesting lyrics
brought out many people to hear him. His
concert emphasized the birth of Christ and
His life on earth. Card's testimony was an
encouragement to all.
Early in the fall, Covenant students
Jon Libby, Mark Howell, David Rayday
and Alex Kang formed the band called the
Garage. They entertained the student body
with top 40 hits, oldies and original pieces.
Evening concerts usually packed the
The spring brought Mark and Jon
back to form a new group called, Johnny
Law and the First Offenders.

KIL TER NIGHT!
Cancelled: due to lack
April Fool's Day was observed in a different
manner at Covenant this year. Dinner was served
backwards, people dressed backwards, and a
Backwards Contest followed dinner. It was a new
way to spend April 1st.
Every year the duo of Dameron-n-Jones/Jones-n-Dameron
take to the stage for an evening of entertainment for the college.
They sing, perform skits, and provide lots of laughs to those that
attend. Always a great way to unwind at the end of the week!

Belz Bash I & II
Belz Hall added a great aspect to the new Covenant Preview
Weekends: Belz Bash. A 'progressive snack' going from the Cata-
combs to the Penthouse provided visitors and students with a good
time of fellowship. Each hall had its own theme; from toga to tux.
Both were a well planned events and very enjoyable.

Send off for
As soon as Dr. Essenburg resigned, plans immediately went under
way to give him an official send-off. The committee planning what was to
be affectionately called the "Marty Party" was headed by the executive
council. The evening went well and gave a true Covenant send-off to our
favorite college president.
A Fond Farewell
Chaos Day Wf
On an early Saturday morning, the fall semester began with a spirit
of hearty competition. Run by Michael Ann Hollyfield and the Resident
Directors, Chaos Day comprised several events. The events began with
an egg toss, a lemonade squeeze for the ladies, men being fed apple
juice from a baby bottle on the laps of female partners, a 'life-saver'
pass with toothpicks and many other events. All enjoyed the competition
and the events brought new friends together.

two men and women. The program, through field
experience, qualifies men and women to graduate
from Covenant with a degree in Organizational Be-
havior. It is for men and women in the surrounding
area who have not completed their undergraduate
work due to various constraints.

V/arsity Scots Soccer
In only his third season at Covenant
as head soccer coach, Brian Crossman
took the Men's Soccer team to the NAIA
National Tournament. The team had a 14-
4 regular season with twelve shutouts. In
the play-off games, Senior Warren Smith
scored the only goal in each of the three
games. The team is growing and will prove
to be a strong competitor for the national
title in years to come. Departing seniors
were, James Tuten, Jonathan Parker, Mar-
shall Rowe, Todd Erickson and Warren
First year coaches Tami Smialek and
Sue Ellen Wilson worked with a relatively
young Lady Scots Volleyball team. The
squad had a disappointing 5-25 regular sea-
son. With the loss of only one senior, Yukari
Takeda, the Lady Scots have a promising fu-

Varsity Scots Volleyball
The 1986-87 Men's Basketball team
had an impressive 21-11 regular season
and for the second year in a row and for
the Second consecutive season advanced
to the NCCAA tournament. The Scots de-
feated the number one team in the area
initially, yet lost the next two games. Ju-
nior Robert Cummings passed the 1000
point mark to cap off the season. The
team will lose only three seniors, Billy
White, Brian Evans and Verne Smith.

Lady Scots Varsity
The 1986-87 Lady Scots suffered
through a disappointing season under
Head Coach Tami Smialek. One highlight
of the season was sophomore Anne Mont-
gomery scoring her 1000th point. The re-
cord will never show the talent, strength
and determination of this young team
which will continue to grow in the future.
